How long will it take?
"Habitual recurrence to the harmony will increase your mastery of it". ~Marcus Aurelius
A common question people have when they first set off on the healing path is, "How long will this take?"
Each of us is unique, so consequently, there is no set timeframe that works for everyone.
Know that the body wants to heal itself. The amount of time it takes to heal depends on how long and how elaborately your energy system and your physical system have been adjusting to the disharmonies in the body and how out of balance you are - body, mind and spirit.
It takes awhile for us to get out of harmony. The goal of each session or practice is to calm the nervous system with a focus on harmony and to return the body, mind, and spirit to a place of balance.
By releasing the blockages of your flow of energy and the restrictions in your joints, the life-force energy in your body is increased. Each session allows us to find and release energies that are tied up in the body, such as health issues, relationships, emotions and attitudes or anything else you wish to work on to bring more joy and harmony into your life. It is in this place of balance and free flowing energy that healing occurs.
The process of change and transformation can happen quickly but it does not run on a fixed schedule. The rate of improvement is specific to you and may include deep relaxation, a reduction in pain, better mobility, an increase in energy, or an improvement in overall health. If the condition is new, it will usually resolve in a shorter amount of time, while longer held conditions may take longer.
Your rate of healing is also dependent on how much energy or change that your body/being can withstand at any given time.
Each of our healing sessions or classes are designed to meet you on your own terms, never pushing you more than you are ready for. Each session builds on the last since the healing process works in layers. As some parts of your body begin to heal, new underlying patterns become exposed and can also be addressed. Over a period of time, we clear more and more issues and learn how to operate in a new and healthy way.
When more time is spent receiving healing, the healing patterns are set more strongly, so your body begins to heal faster. The effects of regularly returning your body to balance are cumulative and lead to deep and sustained changes in your life.
If we use these practices as triage, only using them when we are in desperate need, they are helpful but when we think of these practices for healing and longevity as maintenance, as something that we do as a regular practice with consistency, we don't allow ourselves to get so "out of whack" and our return to harmony is much easier process.
"Healing may not be so much about getting better,
as about letting go of everything that isn't you -
all of the expectations,
all of the beliefs -
and becoming who you are." ~Rachel Naomi Remen
